thank you valen…

Friday, April 10th 2009

Yes I scored 100! in the test!!!;-) Im so happy!

Friday, April 10th 2009

Hi Teacher.
Huuummmm i didn’t understand the example:
The horse’s hay is damp. – Singular (just 1 horse).
The horses’ hay is damp. – Plural
Well, i’m confused, for me is: The horses’s hay ARE damp.

Could you answer me ?


Sunday, April 19th 2009

    Hi Reinoni,

    Hay is an uncountable noun so we don’t add an ‘s’ to the end of hay. If the sentence was: The horses are damp.- we would use ‘are’ but because the sentence is referring to the horse’s hay and hay is uncountable we use ‘is’ instead of ‘are’. You can watch my lesson on Countable and Uncountable Nouns in English to get a better understanding of this.

    Saturday, April 25th 2009

      Mam,i have a question that how about the singular word ends with an ‘s’ like BUS? what would be its singular possession?

      Friday, February 18th 2011

        Mam,i have a question that how about the singular word ends with an ‘s’ like BUS? what would be its singular possession?

        Monday, February 21st 2011

          We often use the “‘s” in organic nouns. As for inanimate nouns, we can use “of”. Such as “The passengers of the bus are excited.” Hope it helps you! XD

          Wednesday, June 28th 2017

Sunday, December 20th 2009

Hi Hi Hi Valen, i just want to say to you that I am among the thousands of people who appreciate what you and the other teachers are doing, I mean you guys are great, doing this online thing for free. I stumbled upon this website just 2 days ago and I have been visiting your site pretty much everyday, hoping that someday I could really improve my communication skills. I know how to speak english but I feel that I am still not “there” yet. I mean, a lot of times I would run out of words or I would stutter or the person I am speaking to does not seem to understand what I am saying and it feels very embarrassing a lot of times. I have been in the states for 6 years now but i am still not confident in my English. Your site has been very helpful to me and to a lot of people who had the same struggle like mine. Keep up the good work. Happy holidays to all of you and may God bless all of you.

Monday, December 28th 2009

Hi Valen I’m Mirelly and I’m really in doubt. I’m used to confusing some things like the possessive, the use of the prepositions like “of” and the adjectives before the nouns. I hope you understood my doubt.
Thank you and congrats by your lesson!

Wednesday, October 20th 2010

what about the proper names like Jesus, Ulysses, Socrates, Euripides.. can we use just an apostrophe at the end?

Friday, October 22nd 2010

    You can do that — “Jesus’ hamburger is on the plate.” for example. But it is more common nowadays to add the “s” after the apostrophe even for names that end in s — “Jesus’s cat is very cute.” for example. Please watch James’s full lesson on Apostrophe+S!

Sunday, January 9th 2011

Hi Teacher,
I’m confused, as you’ve said putting an “S” in a plural word is not correct like your example:
The men’s suits are black — wrong
The men suits are black — correct
But why i got wrong in my quiz answering:
The children teacher is very young.
Could you please answer me.
Thank you.

Wednesday, January 26th 2011

    i think the ‘s’ was used to show the possisve of men suits
    men’s suits mean’s suits are related to men

    There is no cd, and NO email address! Sorry! Everything is right here.

    Monday, July 25th 2011

      course on a CD would be a great business idea….especially in the context of a country where there is (terrible) shortage of English teachers.

      Tuesday, March 13th 2012

        would be helpful for the students too!!

        Tuesday, March 13th 2012

That is John and Jane`s house. is it correct?

Monday, August 8th 2011

I understood very clearly. Thank you so much for nice presentation.

Nazrul, Bangladesh

Wednesday, August 10th 2011

Dear Ma`am,

You referred to the words such as My, Your, His, Her etc. as Possessive Pronouns but that is NOT CORRECT cause they`re possessive ADJECTIVES as each of them describe a NOUN following them.

Please tell me if I`m wrong and I`d be glad to know your comment.

Best wishes,


Tuesday, August 16th 2011

Hi Valen I’m Raju. I’m a regular student of your english lesson. Almost every day I watch your english language courses. Really I fall in love with your teaching style. Would you mind please if you make lesson about use of “in spite of” and “despite of”. I’m grateful to you. Thanks

wow your lesson it interesting! Can you please tell me how to download it

Tuesday, August 23rd 2011

Great lesson, Valen. You made it a lot easier!
By the way, I think “my, your, his…” are possessive adjectives, not pronouns like you said.

Wednesday, August 24th 2011

I did the quiz and I had wrong, the sentense with the words “boy” and “children”.
My answers were boys’s and childrens’.
I don’t undestand. Could you explain me?

Thursday, August 25th 2011

hi miss
i have a little bit confusion about the first sentense i put the word boy’s but that us not correct and the correct one is boys’ tell me why thanks i realy enjoying your classes.umer

Thursday, September 22nd 2011

Hi everybody
the lesson was great, and i have a question if someone would like to answer me, why did she pronounce “S” “SH” in the words apostrophe and street.Which pronunciation is correct. By the way i found Valen and James’s pronunciation more difficult to understand than the other teachers,
How about the combination thank you till the hell freezes over.
thank you

Friday, October 7th 2011


Friday, October 7th 2011

Dear Valen,
I have a question. Actually in the quiz of your lesson “Possession using apostrophie”.
Please tell me in Quiz Q.No 3 Charle and Charles
both are the names why both are not true.
Please reply

Friday, October 7th 2011

Hi Valen, I see the fine work you do here. Well, I’d like to take advantage of that by making a question concerning the use of apostrophes that show possession, can they be use for objects? this is an example: The buliding’s rooms. Is this correct? I thank you beforehand for your kind attention (I’m a student of English as my second language :D )

Sunday, October 9th 2011

Are you sure that we add an apostrophe to the proper names which already have ”s” at the end? Because I saw ”Butters’ new shirt” (for example) They simply added an apostrophe to the end. Without double s.
Thanks for the video! I’d like to see more about grammar. Especially if it’s complicated. ;)

Sunday, October 9th 2011

Your lesson helps me to know better. Thank you so much.

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

Thursday, November 10th 2011

Hi Valen actually I didn’t use this website a lote,
but I watched some of your vidio lessons and is good
but I like to speak with an amrican english teacher from chat or anything you can do.
and in my country doesn’t have those teachers
so if you can any time I will thankyou very much.

Sunday, November 13th 2011

i enjoy ur lessons

Sunday, November 13th 2011


    Nice to know that you know so many languages!!! English is my most preferred language!!!

    Tuesday, September 25th 2012

Regarding possession and apostraphe’s — What about if you are trying to say that two boys own an item(s)?
Ex. The boys’s bedroom. or The boys’ bedroom? The boy’s bedrooms…

I have an ongoing argument with someone who has two boys! This comes up a lot and frankly, I’m really not sure how it’s written or said. I say it like a proper name, like the Charles’s pen example. Please clarify.

Wednesday, November 16th 2011

    It should be the boys' bedrooms, pronounced the same as the boy's bedrooms. This is the same for words that end in -s (for example, if Charles is a surname and you’re talking about people from the Charles family, the plural would be Charleses and the possessive is Charleses').

    Wednesday, November 16th 2011

hi miss valen thank you

Friday, November 18th 2011

hello,my name is malick from west Africa, i’m very fond of your wonderful lessons in english and that was my first time to see those commons expressions in english,let me wish all my congratulations for you!

Sunday, November 20th 2011

hello I have a question Valen.khi we add s to s as from a word ending such as this sentence charles’s birthday is tomorrow.

Wednesday, November 23rd 2011

I have a question about this sentence,”Tall guy gets knocked out by one punch after harassing a man and his friends.” my question is why they use the word “gets” instead got….what is difference between got knocked out and gets knocked out. I don’t understand the concept of using two verb side by side but one verb is past tense and other verb is present tense.

Saturday, December 3rd 2011

The horses’ hay is damp.

horses’ = plural

please confirm. thanks

Thursday, February 23rd 2012

    It’s the hay that is damp, not the horses, so it should be “is”

    Friday, February 24th 2012

Valen , You Rock!!

Friday, February 24th 2012

Hello, Miss valen . Thanks for all your efforts that you have been offered to increase skills in The English Language.

If you please , can you tell me the meaning of this expression ” Once in a blue moon ” , it is a metaphor or an idiom ? and why?

Wednesday, February 29th 2012

    Traditionally, it means the extra moon in a season, as farmers count the seasons. Normally a season has three full moons in it, but when there’s four, the third one is called the “blue moon”. Nowadays it means the second full moon in a month. Neither of these happens very often, so “once in a blue moon” is an idiom meaning something that rarely happens.

    Wednesday, February 29th 2012

      Thanks to explain the Idiom ,it was very kind of you .

      Miss Valen, frankly I have a problem in the mutual conversation , mostly I understand the speaker but I can not immedaitely respond , despite I have got B.sc. in Translation English grade good , and my native langugae is Arabic ,what suppose to do ?

    Wednesday, May 9th 2018

Hi to our teacher Valen

Friday, May 11th 2012

Hi you you know you are so good thx wish best for you dear teacher

Monday, May 14th 2012

Hi Valen,

Finally, I can understand much better this time about ‘S.
Well, I still have one question for you and I think I should ask you with an example or formula:-

A NOUN that does not ends with S but is plural, then the next NOUN should be plural with verb ARE
EX- boys’ teachers are good in Mathematics

But the last quiz question says:-
The ______boys’_________ teacher is very young.

I believe this statement is absolutely WRONG.
It should be

**The boys’ teachers are very young.

Please correct me if I am wrong and reply back soon.


Wednesday, May 16th 2012

Hi Teacher
I really love this web site and especially you..

please check the below :

# John and Jane’s house is near. ” They have one house the same one”.
# John’s and Jane’s houses are near.” each of them has separable house”.
# John and Jane s’ houses are near.” They have many houses and the all for them”.

you mentioned case 1,2 . what about case 3 ?? is it true.
thanks for your lessons.

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Hi teacher. I have a question, is it correct to say ‘Charles’ birthday’? Can I omit the ‘s’?

Dear teacher,
Can we use a apostrophe to show the possesion of things ?

Is that right ?
Many thanks to you.

Friday, May 30th 2014

Thank you sooooo much! It is that simple, though it has been confusing me for many years!

Tuesday, June 24th 2014

Hi there,

I don’t think you need to pluralise “house” if both John and Jen own just ONE house each. You need to do so if they both possess two or more houses. I mean:

-John and Jen’s house: the couple owns one house.
-John’s and Jen’s house: John owns one house and Jen owns one house.
-John and Jen’s houses: the couple possess two or more houses.
-John’s and Jen’s houses: John owns two or more houses and Jen owns two or more houses.

Is that correct? Thanks for your reply.

Wednesday, July 9th 2014

Great Lesson. Thank you.

Wednesday, July 9th 2014

the teacher’s explanation is very clear. I thank her for good work

Thursday, July 10th 2014

Hi there.
Dear Valen I got 5/5.recently I’m looking for STH such as gonna-wanna-gotta etc i like these more than saying( I’m going to…)because I think i can speak fast when i use them could you tell me more about them.THX

Wednesday, July 30th 2014

thanks Valen, great lesson. although the first task of the quiz is a little confusing – in my mind, the right answer could be both boy’s (if we are reffering to a specific boy whose soccer games are cancelled) and boys’ (if we are reffering to some group of boys whose soccer games are canceled)

Friday, August 8th 2014

Wednesday, July 27th 2016

Dear /Valen
I’d like to say that I’ve really enjoyed your lesson but I’ve written down some points;first , you said my ….. and his ……. are possessive pronouns and as far as i know they are possessive adjectives.secondly , in the last sentence in your quiz , i can’t see any possessions at all ” This restaurant’s hamburgers are the best in town” , we don’t use apostrophe with places , do we? if we use it in that case we can say (Valen eats at the hotel’s restaurant , when she travels on business.
Hoping that won’t annoy u.

Hi there, and thanks for lesson.
